It seems like everyday you hear about a new do-it-all fitness regimen or a new study showing that the exercises that you once thought were best are actually bad for you.

Maximizing Mobility

According to physical therapist Kelly Starrett, there’s a resurgent interest in taking care of our bodies. Countless people are doing squats at CrossFit gyms, standing at their desks and spending hours on elliptical trainers. Which is great, but Starrett observes that nearly all of us conduct our daily physical business with poor technique and bad biomechanics. He’s crusading to right those wrongs, and Starrett joins us Tuesday to explain how to move your body correctly to avoid injury and maximize your physical potential.

Kelly Starrett is a coach, physical therapist, author, speaker, and creator of the MobilityWOD blog. His book is called Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Physical Performance [Amazon|Indiebound].
